Good Course

Really like the layout of this course. Nice mix of easier and hard holes. Conditions are pretty good, they are working on the traps and some grass repair, but overall good. Weather was great, a little brisk for me, but sunny and just a little wind.

Badly Flooded COurse

It's sad to see this course going downhill like this! Too many bare spots and too much flood damage. Hope it will recover soon. Not worth $45. at all.

Not worth $

Golf is in bad shape ,dirt patches all over the place . Lots of bunkers but ALL had standing water in them looked like they had next to no sand in them. Greens were over seeded. Just not worth $75.

No marshal to be found

There are several 3/4 player groups in front of us took a significant amount of time to find the balls. The worst is that they won't let us through. At the back 9, one group came after and mentioned that they were supposed to be next after the other group, and we ended up letting them play ahead of us. There should be a marshal around to speed up the pace of place. It took us nearly 3 hours to finish front 9, and we left right after hole 10 as it was extremely slow with the 2 groups in front of us. I demand a rain-check.

Hello. Thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and to best control pace allowing everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve, and we are glad to see you rated the course conditions to be great during your game. Thank you for playing Houston National Golf Club. We hope to see you again soon.
